Staff Induction

We believe it is essential that we have in place clear induction procedures to provide all newly appointed staff with a programme of structured support and guidance so that they can integrate successfully into the school.

 

We wish to work closely with the Pupil Voice Groups and to hear their views and opinions as we acknowledge and support Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child that children should be encouraged to form and to express their views.

 

We as a school community have a commitment to promote equality. Therefore, an equality impact assessment has been undertaken and we believe this policy is in line with the Equality Act 2010.
